As far as my knowledge goes, it has been constructed. It is part of BMD setup. L&T was involved in construction. IAI radars were always a part of our BMD, so it's not a surprise. But whether it's a JV in between L&T & IAI is unknown. As far as report goes, no such JV for radar exists.
Well, kehne ko to it must have been secretely inducted already, and also secretly might have a range of 8000 km and not the officially stated 5000 km. But what's the point of all this secrecy? No other country with nuclear weapons does this. The real use of nuclear tipped missiles is as a deterrent. And deterrence would work only when your adversary knows that you actually have them. US would have been far less hesitant in invading North Korea if Kim Jong Un had been saying his ICBM is "being deployed" for the last four years. What purpose does hiding their existence serve? And if you intend to keep it a secret then why say to news channels that you are going to induct it this year only to not induct it?Are you sure.
